Oil major BP said its new Juniper platform has started its journey towards the southeast coast of Trinidad.
It will be installed there as its fourteenth offshore installation.
The Juniper project is a $2billion investment in Trinidad and Tobago and one of BP’s largest projects in 2017.
Norman Christie, BP Trinidad and Tobago regional president, said:“A little over two years ago the Juniper project was sanctioned and, at that time, it represented a significant milestone as an important part of the future of bpTT.
“Today, we are pleased to see the project progress even further and closer to start up with the sail away of the jacket and topsides. This is a fantastic achievement by the project team and is a very visible sign of our commitment to maintaining a successful long term business in T&T.”
The Juniper project comprises a platform made up of jacket, piles and topsides and corresponding subsea infrastructure which will be installed 50 miles offshore in 360feet of water.
